**Update!! You can buy this at Target - I found some there today! Hooray!
I am pretty excited to review these products - many of them I had never tried and a few I had never heard of at all! Plus - they sent me two different teas! Woo! You can find those tea reviews at my tea blog.
I am fairly certain this was just a lucky selection on Birchbox's side, but the Green Tea and Lemon Bianca TOCCA Crema da Mano Luxe was perfect!
I am a huge tea lover and blogger so this green tea infused lotion tied right into my passions. The lotion smells incredible and makes my hands feel soft.
This hand moisturizer came just in time for the winter season when my hands tend to get cracked and achy. I have already made this lotion a staple in my bag. I just love it!
The Beauty Protector Spray - Protect and Detangle has so much potential and once you get it out of the bottle, it's actually a pretty great product. Unfortunately, my bottle doesn't spray well. I have to unscrew the top and work into my hair with my hands in order to get an even amount. I received this product in my October Birchbox.
The spray itself goes on with a great fragrance and made my hair super soft and fluffy after blow drying. I have short wavy hair so I feel like this product really complements my natural volume and takes away the frizz, too.
I probably won't buy this product right away but I may try a few of their other hair products. My only complaint was the spray bottle itself - poor packaging.
I really enjoyed this exfoliant cleanser by sukí. I got this product in my October Birchbox and fell in love with the fragrance first. It smells delicious. But, to be honest, I thought maybe mine was dried up. The texture is super misleading because it looks like it's super dry and it's actually slightly difficult to scoop a finger through it to get a good amount to wash your face. That said, you don't need much. A fingertip's worth of this product is enough to wash your face and as soon as you begin to rub your hands together with a touch of water this cleanser comes to life!
Most exfoliating cleansers can leave your skin feeling raw and sensitive, but this leaves you feeling soft and luxurious. Plus, it smells awesome.
This is one of those products that I feel like I am supposed to be completely in love with but I'm just really not. When I first saw the color, I was confused. Granted, this came in my first Birchbox but I am not a funky kind of girl and would never wear silver eyeliner.
That said, I gave it a try. The color wasn't right for me at all or my natural color palettes and worse the actual eyeliner was just disappointing.
The Cynthia Rowley Silver Eyeliner left my eyes feeling goopy and greasy. I followed the directions and lightly applied to my eyes but it clumped in my lashes and made my eyes feel heavy and watery. It's definitely a smooth application but a little too smooth.
I thought maybe I'd like a different color better but honestly, I don't think I would just because of the texture of the eyeliner. I have heard a lot about how great Cynthia Rowley products are - I am hoping that this was just a bad first impression. Maybe I will get to try something else by this brand that changes my mind.
Holy smooth and silky awesome-ness, Batman! I love this shaving cream! When I first saw this in my Birchbox - I thought it smelled incredible but I was slightly skeptical of how well it would work on my skin because the cream is so light.
I was incredibly surprised - the Whish Shaving Cream is light and almost feels like you don't have enough on your skin but the moisture completely shines. I have not had razor burn since I started using this cream and my skin feels so soft after shaving.
I'm not sure that it was intended for your face, but we all have pesky hairs that may or may not be able to get plucked so a quick swipe with a razor is sometimes needed. This stuff works great on my weird stubble patch on my chin. Smells awesome, too!
